GTA Coming to the Wii?

September 5, 2008 -

Are Nico Bellic and Liberty City coming to the Wii?

Take-Two CEO Ben Feder (left) wouldn't say yes and wouldn't say no during yesterday's conference call to discuss T2's third quarter financial results. As reported by MCVUK, here are Feder's comments:

With respect to GTA Chinatown I will tell you that we’ve spent an enormous amount of time and effort working with Nintendo and developing that partnership. We’re very proud of the partnership that we have to date.

 

We continue to build that relationship. We think we have significant value to add to that partnership and that’s not a one-way relationship in any way. GTA Chinatown Wars is not even the first step but certainly an important step in continuing to develop that relationship.

 

So without commenting on whether GTA specifically whether it is coming to the Wii or not, I will say that Nintendo and Take-Two work very well together. Nintendo and Rockstar are beginning to work well together and we intend to continue to grow that relationship.

GTA Chinatown, of course, is the DS title revealed by Nintendo at E3. No release date has been specified.

Any decision to move GTA to the Wii would likely be based on technology as opposed to residual queasiness over Nintendo's "family friendly" image. After all, the Wii has already been graced with Manhunt 2. The controversial Madworld is in the pipeline.

From a tech perspective, it would seem quite the challenged to get, say, GTA IV on the Wii, given the system's limited storage capacity. So perhaps if the GTA franchise does make it to the Wii, it will be a system-specific title.

Dennis McCauley, you're a fraud.  You have a posting policy below, and yet here you have allowed some idiot to use the F word above, and you allowed the assertion here that I am a homosexual.  Grow up.

Shut the fuck up.  You break those policies with nearly ever single one of your posts.  And yet Dennis has shown you more patience than most people would have shown you.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

If a GTA game does come to the Wii, it would be about fucking time. And it is possible to put something like GTA IV on it if possible. Look at the Wii version of Dead Rising coming out.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

GTA4Wii? I'd buy it...if nothing else, just to see what all the fuss is about.

Anyone know if there's a SMG in the game(s)?

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

 

No, GTA 4 is too big for a Wii Optical Disc.  But I think they may re-port (remake and port) GTA 3, Vice City,or San Andreas for the Wii.  I did read that they wanted to make a port of GTA 3 for the Gamecube but that failed.  So I think this maybe the first time GTA3 appear on a Nintendo console (well, not counting GTA Advance).  It's possible Vice City may appear on this console also.  Same thing for San Andreas.  But it's kind of nice to see GTA3 series on a Nintendo console. 

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

GTA for Wii could work as long as they focus on it and make it as good as the PS2 games. The Wii may not have the horse power of the X-Box and PS3, but it's got more than enough to run a GTA game. But if it's a quick cash-in, there's no way it will run well on the Wii hardware.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

Dead Rising is also coming to the Wii.

But, GTA IV? Seriously? Come on. Sure it, would be a gold mine for Nintendo, but for the rest of us it would be a bad game. Like it said up there; the Wii has puny tech specs compared to the 360 and PS3.

My suggestion. Make an original GTA game for the Wii.

Re: GTA Coming to the Wii?

Will they fix the shooting for it?  I don't know how they could screw that up for the Wii, but some companies have surprised me before I must admit.

I actually expect this game to do well if they do go Wii, but I respect the fact of keeping it to the other consoles instead, and not going the EA type route and create a GTA for Wii, GTA Street Racing, GTA Cooking with Tony....

No, actually, he's likely been praying for this as his "ultimate proof"

MonteThough from a business side, i would agree with the article. While it would be smarter for developers to slow down, you can't expect EA, Activision or ubisoft to do something like that. Nintnedo's gotta get the third party back.02/28/2015 - 4:36pm
MonteThough it does also help that nintendo's more colorful style is a lot less reliant on graphics than more realistic games. Wind Waker is over 10 years old and still looks good for its age.02/28/2015 - 4:33pm
MonteWith the Wii, nintnedo had the right idea. Hold back on shiny graphics and focus on the gameplay experience. Unfortunatly everyone else keeps pushing for newer graphics and it matters less and less each generation. I can barely notice the difference02/28/2015 - 4:29pm
MonteON third party developers; i kinda think they should slow down to nintendo's pace. They bemoan the rising costs of AAA gaming, but then constantly push for the best graphics which is makes up a lot of those costs. Be easier to afford if they held back02/28/2015 - 4:27pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.forbes.com/sites/insertcoin/2015/02/28/the-world-is-nintendos-if-only-theyd-take-it/ I think this is a interesting op-ed, but yeah it kind of is stating the obvious.02/28/2015 - 2:52pm
prh99The government probably doesn't need an app, but I was think more along the lines of a company that was going to sell the collected info. “If you're not paying for the product, you are the product” sometimes even if you pay.02/28/2015 - 1:50pm
E. Zachary KnightWhat better way for the government to keep track of you than to get you to install an app that lets you insult the government.02/28/2015 - 11:03am
prh99No, but I looked it up and it's basically spyware. Their privacy policy says their apps tracks among other things your location and browsing habits via cookies.02/28/2015 - 8:20am
Ryan RardinHas anyone here heard of an app called iCitizen? It's basically Yelp for politicians.02/28/2015 - 5:16am
Andrew EisenAh, not linked in the way you (and everyone else) want and expect. That's true.02/27/2015 - 10:06pm
Matthew Wilsonthey are not linked in a way that tracks purchases though. the fact that they have to send a code for the other system shows that they are not linked in the way it counts.02/27/2015 - 9:39pm
Andrew EisenAccounts are already linked. Have been for quite a while. Also, Mario vs. Donkey Kong was announced as a cross-buy title during last January's Nintendo Direct.02/27/2015 - 9:25pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.vg247.com/20…/…/27/olli-olli-3ds-wii-u-cross-buy/ I wounder if this is a sign that Nintendo may finally link accounts across the 3ds/wiiu in the near future.02/27/2015 - 9:18pm
